Hi all, 

On the weekend I was up at Healesville in Victoria.  At the Badger Creek
weir picnic ground there was a female Superb lyrebird in the barbecue area
accepting bread scraps from visitors along with the Crimson rosellas, Pied
currawongs, and a few Common bronzewings and Australian King parrots.

I won't comment on the benefits or otherwise of humans feeding wildlife
(especially right next to a sign marked "do not feed the wildlife").

I've never seen a Lyrebird do this before - is it common?
